Since 1983, Kevin Wanzer has been noted as being able to ‘reach the unreachable’. His program energizes and celebrates the best in everyone. Promoting responsibility and community, his “aloha” message provides leaders with the skills and tools needed to effect change and create a climate of possibility where everyone counts and no one gets left behind or forgotten. Described as “organized chaos”, Kevin’s program spotlights The Search Institute’s “40 Developmental Assets”. These essential tools, for any adult who plays a role in empowering the lives of young people, are guaranteed to last long after the laughter.
A former staff member for the David Letterman Show in New York City and an honors graduate of Butler University in Indianapolis, Kevin has spent his life inspiring young people to live life to its fullest, to look within and be a role model to themselves and to embrace and live the aloha spirit - focusing on attitude, loving yourself and others, overcoming obstacles and having a sense of humor.
